The One That Got Away ~ Banele Kubheka

Where did I go wrong?
Every day I question myself
Was I not good enough?
Was I not your type?

When I first met you
I never thought
I would so attached to you
I never thought
I would long for you this much
I would crave your company this badly
I would yearn for your companionship
I never thought at all.

I regret not taking all the chances I had
All the opportunities you gave me

Your eyes
Smiling ever time you stole a glance at me
Your hands
Finishing every sentence your mouth faltered
Your body
Moving with every bit of elegance and self-confidence
Yet you slipped right through my fingers
You never know how much you love someone
Until they leave you
The one that got away.
